The VFCCE Student Success Fund provides essential support services that help students master the skills necessary for acquiring and keeping a good job, such as resume writing, interviewing, financial literacy, continuing education, and specialized training.
In addition to completing their community college education, these students enter the workforce positioned for success thanks to this supplemental support and training. They are statistically more likely to secure higher-paying roles, and to remain in those roles for a longer period. This means more economic stability for those students and for the Virginia economy.
Peyton was able to pursue a degree in nursing thanks to the Chris Lumsden Commonwealth Legacy Scholarship awarded to her through the VFCCE.
